I was so excited to see that I have a Bio on the Cottage Life Blog! I guess this means I'm a regular contributor, which thrills me. Not only is "cottageing" an amazing experience in and of itself, it's also really fun to write about. Especially when I get to add my snide little asides about my brother-in-law. He can handle it, don't feel sorry for him! Anyway, it's been a very pleasant experience and to see that they have carved out a little of their cyber space to include me is an honour. Thanks for reading and keep checking in to find out about the next guest post! For now, you can read about adding warmth to your cottage with decor...

It was great to write about Holiday Decor and simple decorating tips for my latest guest post on the Cottage Life Blog. Looking at all the holiday blogs and pictures on the internet has definitely kick-started my holiday spirit. Go on and have a look - hopefully you are inspired for the upcoming holidays!

Here is the tour of the model cottage at the Fall Cottage Life Show. There are pictures of the interior to give you an idea of how I styled the cottage. It was such a great experience and the whole Cottage Life crew were amazing to work with - so supportive and fun.
If you have seen anything you like in a picture, have a look at the previous post to find sources. Most of what I used was from a variety of helpful and amazing vendors at the show. Thanks to all of you that helped make it such a wonderful experience!
First of all, thanks to all of you that came out to the Fall Cottage Life Show! It was a great success and there were line ups around the model cottage for a lot of the weekend. I have to say, it was an amazing experience and so much fun to style the cottage. It was so nice to get such such positive feedback from both the people visiting it, as well as the generous and helpful vendors that participated. Please have a look at the source guide to see who participated.
